4 hour league

quote [ 12 hours for what we will ]

Forgive the crappy English ? apart from that link found in a paper everything seems to be tucked away on German Facebook, sadly.

The premise: Cut the day in half while paying full wage? like a privatized basic income. Far-fetched? Of course ? but ? [more]

Who Pays For This?

quote [ Countries (and to some extent companies) are different. They have indefinite lives. So they can remain indebted indefinitely, even with rising debt.
when people say, ?We?re leaving this debt for our kids and grandkids to repay.? Well ? probably not. ]

Mhh, the growth thing is a capitalist aspect, but money should be treated a tool as any. Seeing how banks managed systemic changes (e.g. cuts on fiscal transitions and the like) is not taken into account here.

How an "old hippie" got accused of astroturfing the right-wing campaign to reopen the economy

quote [ ?I realized all these fringe guys are gonna get a hold of these websites, So I went out and bought ?em up that night,? he told me. The financial burden of thwarting fringe-right groups? ?It cost me about four grand,? Murphy said. ?I don?t have the money quite frankly. I was just trying to do something good. I?m in massive credit debt to do this.? ]

The many faces of digital protest: an analysis, suggests that the original registration was a scamming scheme for money.

I Tried Not to Cum While Playing the Adult Games Advertised on Pornhub

quote [ The first thing to know about these games is that they're not exactly free, and that you can't buy them like you buy a game on Steam. These ads are selling subscriptions to adult game websites. All of the ads on Pornhub's network of sites (YouPorn, Redtube, etc) are managed by TrafficJunky, which is owned by Pornhub's parent company, MindGeek. It's an ouroboros of advertising money, eating its own dick, endlessly. Telling me not to cum. ]

I triple dog dare you not to cum to this post. Don't even think about what kind of scenario might lead to you wanting to explode in an orgasm of violent energy shaking your body from your toes to your finger tips. Just don't.

Small Business Emergency Relief Program Hits $349 Billion Cap In Less Than 2 Weeks

quote [ The $349 billion Paycheck Protection Program to boost small businesses during the coronavirus economic crisis has run out of money.

"The SBA is currently unable to accept new applications for the Paycheck Protection Program based on available appropriations funding," a Small Business Administration spokesperson said in an emailed statement Thursday. "Similarly, we are unable to enroll new PPP lenders at this time." ]

I wonder where that money actually went...we should ask the inspector general...oh, wait...

The Original Internet Bottleneck

quote [ Many early ISPs?particularly AOL?weren?t ready to offer unlimited internet access in the mid-?90s. That is, until a surprising disruptor appeared: AT&T. ]

Have AOL make my email stop

?It?s Collapsing Violently?: Coronavirus Is Creating a Fast Fashion Nightmare

quote [ A survey of factory owners by Pennsylvania State University?s Center for Global Workers? Rights released last week stated that the canceled orders?which many Western companies are refusing to pay for?have left millions of workers, many of whom are women from rural areas, without wages owed or severance. Nearly all Western buyers have refused to contribute to worker wages, the survey found. ?Our situation is apocalyptic,? Rubana Huq, president of the BGMEA, told the New York Times. ]

Looks like this is getting worse still. Sad times for people in the chain.
